For the last few years, I’ve always looked forward to the rapper Skillz and his yearly “Rap Up.” What he does, and now others that have come after him also do now, is give a year-end recap in a rap song of most of the past year’s memorable moments. Thanks to SoulBounce.com, I was notified that the 2015 song had been uploaded to Soundcloud. There are very few controversies, beefs, surprise moments, internet memes and entertainment stories that he misses—he even gets in a joke at Steve Harvey’s expense at the very beginning from the Miss Universe pageant fiasco from a few weeks back. Donald Trump, #thatdamndress, Saint West, Drake vs. Meek Mill, Hilary Clinton’s emails, the Super Bowl and “Deflategate”…they all get a mention.
I’m not sure how many people out there are into hip-hop or rap, but this is another wrap up that was well done by Skillz. May he continue for the years to come. The track is also not worksafe (hence the “Dirty” label in the Soundcloud stream).
If you dare, take a listen and leave your impressions in the comments.
